Tenure: Freehold

Delightful PERIOD property offering a WEALTH of CHARM and CHARACTER, with many ORIGINAL FEATURES, such as exposed beams, INGLENOOK FIREPLACES and timber panelled walls.

The house has been sympathetically modernised over recent years and provides spacious five bedroom accommodation with the master bedroom having its own en-suite facilities. To the ground floor are four receptions rooms, kitchen/breakfast room and utility along with a cloakroom.

Outside the property sits in formal gardens with a wide range of traditional and modern outbuildings and the eleven acres of ground is separated into a number of useful enclosures. The land itself has for many years been utilised as a productive small holding, supporting goats, sheep and donkeys but could easily lend itself to those with equestrian interest with easy access to bridleways and quiet country lanes for hacking out. The property has water frontage onto the Medland Brook and fishing rights for those who enjoy fly fishing.

The house is set well away from any immediate in an idyllic rural location offering a high degree of privacy and seclusion. There is a large garage workshop for vehicle enthusiasts and some of the other buildings can provide additional garaging or storage if required.


SITUATION: 
Situated in a secluded rural setting amidst farmland and woodland and bordered by the Medland Brook, a tributary of the River Lew. The market town of Okehampton is easily accessible with an excellent range of shops and services, three supermarkets including a Waitrose. There is schooling from infant to sixth form level, modern hospital and state of the art leisure centre. From Okehampton there is direct access to the A30 dual carriageway providing link west into Cornwall, or east to the cathedral and University City of Exeter. The Dartmoor National Park is accessible at Okehampton with hundreds of square miles of superb unspoilt scenery, ideal for riding, walking and outdoor pursuits. In addition the north and south coasts of Devon are easily accessible with attractive beaches and delightful coastal scenery. The area is well known for its leisure and sporting opportunities with fishing on the Taw and Torridge and excellent opportunities for riding and walking on the Tarka trail....
